It's Super Seven for Morpeth


Byline: By Bill McGuirk

Morpeth Harriers made it seven wins in a row when their quartet triumphed in yesterday's Elswick Road Relays at Newburn Business Park.

However, on this occasion, their B team, which had finished runners-up for the past four years, had to be content with eighth place.

The North Eastern Cross-Country champion pulled away from Claire Simpson (Jarrow and Hebburn) around the midway point to win by 16 seconds.
